Abstract:

This volume presents a ground-breaking overview of the interconnections
between socio-cultural reality and language practices, by looking at the
different ways in which social roles are performed, maintained, adopted and
assigned through linguistic means. The introductory chapter discusses and
evaluates different theoretical approaches to the question, and the eight
articles by leading scholars in the field offer a multiplicity of
methodological and theoretical approaches to the description and
interpretation of social roles as expressed in a variety of texts from the
eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. While the specific period covered is
Late Modern English, the theoretical insights offered will be of interest
to any linguist interested in sociolinguistics, pragmatics and the history
of English, as well as scholars in the social sciences and social history
interested in the concept and realisation of roles.

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis
                            Sociolinguistics

Subject Language(s): English (eng)

Written In: English (eng )
